Who Administers Your Injectables Matters

Who Administers Your Injectables Matters

Minimally invasive, nonsurgical, injectable aesthetic therapies such as Botox® and dermal fillers correct the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Injectables ranked as the top two minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2019. 

The popularity of injectables has led to an explosion of providers who claim to be able to administer them. While Botox and dermal fillers are safe when injected by a trained professional, these substances can cause unattractive and potentially damaging results when administered without proper knowledge and training. 

To get the best, most flattering results with injectables, it’s important to choose an experienced injectables specialist. At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa in Godfrey, Illinois, Samuel Figueroa, MD, Mirka Figueroa, and our team are trained in injection techniques that give you the best, most flattering results possible. 

Below, you can find out how injectables work and how consulting with an experienced provider can make the difference in improving your appearance and protecting your well-being. 

How neuromodulators works

Botox, Dysport®, and Jeuveau® are brands of cosmetic injectables that act as neuromodulators because they contain highly purified botulinum toxin, a byproduct of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In high doses, botulinum toxin causes botulism, a form of muscle paralysis. 

In contrast, when we administer neuromodulators as a cosmetic treatment, we inject a very small amount of the toxin into the muscle that causes a wrinkle when it contracts under your skin. The muscle then relaxes and smooths out.

A neuromodulator injection quiets the muscle and prevents the skin above the muscle from wrinkling. The treated area has a smooth, youthful appearance until the effect wears off, usually in about four months.

How dermal fillers work

Dermal fillers are injectables that add immediate volume to your skin, plumping up wrinkles, lines, and creases. Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring cushioning agent. 

Your body produces its own HA, but it decreases with age. As you lose optimal levels of HA, skin structure and volume decrease, emphasizing the look of wrinkles.

We offer several collections of FDA-approved dermal fillers. Each collection includes several products, each designed to treat a specific area. We use products by Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Belotero®, and Versa®.

Radiesse is made up of opaque calcium hydroxylapatite. We recommend the best dermal filler or combination of fillers and neuromodulators best suited for your needs.

Experienced providers give excellent results

Natural-looking results with injectables require an understanding of aesthetics and facial anatomy. Our injectors have undergone professional training that helps them perfect the techniques necessary to safely deliver desired outcomes.

When you work with an experienced neuromodulator provider, you can expect:
